Editorial Reviews

Beautiful do-gooder Julia (Trish Everly) and her insane, hideously deformed twin sister Mary (Allison Biggers) have a hard time occupying the same room, let alone the same town, without Mary either brandishing a butcher knife or letting her giant killer dog come out to play. Their uncle, Father James (Dennis Robertson), presses for reconciliation but to no avail. With their mutual birthday fast approaching, Mary escapes from the local asylum. Soon thereafter, the bodies of Julia s friends and students mount around her. But is Mary actually the killer?

Format: DVD
"Madhouse" is one of the better films that was previously on the "banned" list of so-called video nasties in the UK. Which is why I originally sought it out in the 1980's. It didn't really deserve it's place on the list, but it's easy to spot the scene that probably put it there...which I will get to later.

Built around a slasher/crazed relative plot, the film stands above it's rivals due to some really good cinematography. The story tells of a young teacher named Julia (Trish Everly) who has lived under the shadow of her abusive sister Mary since childhood. Her adult life has been relatively peaceful until news reaches her that Mary is suffering from a disfiguring disease and wants to see her. Julia's visit to the hospital is one among several scenes that stayed in my mind. As she walks through the ward, the atmosphere is quite dreamlike, with the room seeming like a huge white theatre, festooned in curtains. Mary makes for a rather belligerent and ungrateful patient however, and Julia's life is turned upside down by this encounter with her cruel sibling, and in the days following the visit, people around her start dying.

The film is enjoyable and capable of sustaining interest throughout it's running time. Trish Everly makes a very likeable heroine, and a lot of trouble is taken to gain the viewers sympathies for her, especially in the early scenes set in the school for deaf children where she works. She's rather timid, but armed with a fairly good script, she makes for an appealing heroine. Another good character is the fiesty girl friend who agrees to sleep over in Julia's apartment when events start to take a more sinister turn.

An Italian production, written directed & produced by an Egyptian filmmaker, with american actors. How many films are like that? Madhouse was made in the golden age of slasher cinema. It's underrated and pretty much forgotten.

Story: Julia is a teacher for hearing impaired kids, with a boyfriend, and an awful secret. Julia has a maniacal twin sister, who is suffering from a disease, which causes her deformity. Mary is her name and she wants to make Julia suffer. Soon Mary escapes, with the help of her trusty canine companion, mayhem ensues, just in time for Mary and Julia's birthday.

Strengths: Decent story, good acting, decent characters, good effects, terrific score/soundtrack, foreboding atmosphere, great eerie sets, and a good cast.

Weaknesses: At times a few scenes drag, but the film remains an overall decent pace.

Fun Facts: Had a spot on the video nasties list. Had other titles, there was a little girl, and when she was bad. The film was released about the same time as Happy Birthday To Me, and just like it, features a macabre dinner party.

Final Thoughts: Its definitely better than some of its other slasher siblings, like, The Slayer (1981). I love the antagonists, they're wicked and twisted, especially our actual lead killer, not Mary or her dog, but rather a surprise maniac. I really adore the film's score and soundtrack. The film throws several aspects from other films into its plot, Halloween, Happy Birthday To Me, etc. Overall I like Madhouse it's not that bad.

It wasn't the best outcome for the story line. Plot showed promise, the "killer" while oddly creepy put a bit to much comedy to the part for my taste. Takes away from the purpose of a horror movie. Also the main character is too ditzy to believe. Blatant clues fly right over her head like the sermon
